Answer by aj
It’s debated the true origins of the modern fortune cookie,but it really didn’t come from either China or Japan.It was originated in the US,in California,but I don’t think they are certain to exactly who invented it.It’s likely it could have been a Chinese-American or Japanese-American,but technically,the fortune cookie’s birthplace was in the US.

Can You Provide a Recipe for Pow-Pows?

Question by houstonpackard: Can You Provide a Recipe for Pow-Pows?
This is either a Russian or German food and may be spelled Pau-Pau, don’t know but sounds delicious.
Great recipe down below, but that’s not it. It’s beef with some sort of gravy in a dumpling form and either Slavic or German…Pow POW or Pau Pau. Wish I could give you the 10 points because your recipe sounds like good Southwestern fare. Am asking for a neighbor as I’ve never heard of this dish.

Pow-wow Potluck [6 serv]

1 lb hamburger meat, browned,crumbled,and drained
1 (15 ounce) can Mexican chili beans
1 (15 ounce) can manwich sloppy joe sandwich sauce (or equivalent)

For toppings;-
Fritos corn chips (or any kind of corn chips, I prefer chili cheese Fritos, but any corn chips will work)
shredded cheese (I use a mexican blend)
diced tomatoes
chopped onions
sour cream
shredded lettuce
jalapenos (etc.)

Brown, crumble, and drain hamburger meat in a large skillet.
In the same skillet, combine the cooked meat, beans, and sloppy joe sauce.
Simmer until heated through, approximately 5-10 minutes.
To serve, put a layer of corn chips (I use chili cheese Fritos) on the bottom of a plate.
Top with the meat mixture, then top with the toppings of your choice.
I normally put out shredded mexi blend cheese,diced tomatoes, chopped onions, sour cream, shredded lettuce, and sliced jalapenos, but use your imagination!
Prep time includes chopping veggies and browning the hamburger meat.
